Programme Outline

After several global financial crises, the business world has realized the importance of good corporate governance and how current shortcomings in governance practices have led to excess financial and operational risks.

To address this matter, regulators around the globe have started issuing enhanced rules and regulations that guide companies to implement an effective corporate governance framework.

It has become a vital need for organisations to have a qualified person to play the important strategic and supportive role in implementing a practical and adequate corporate governance framework and manage the compliance risk through advanced tools and professional techniques.
